I’ve featured this a fair few times in previous monthly favourites and posts, but whilst repurchasing it for the 2nd time yesterday I came to the realisation that it was more than worthy of a full review! No girl (or boy!) should be without this little pot of miracles! Sounding a little bit cheesy there, but nobody likes to be greeted with dry, crackled lips with excess skin flaking off and causing an unsightly mess through a lipstick. We’ve all been there, and the Mac lipsticks that I continuously wear seem to dry my lips right out (do they have this effect on anyone else?!) yet I still can’t to go a day without my beloved shygirl shade. I’m a big lover of lipsalves too (the body shops vitamin e being my favourite), but whilst they help to nourish my lips, I always seem to need that extra helping hand in achieving soft, flake free lips.
Que Mint Julips ♡...
You can purchase the mint julips for £5.25 from Lush and you get a generous amount that lasts for a fair few months. To use, you simply pop your finger in and scrub the exfoliating sugar particles onto your lips- the bonus being that you get to lick the excess off! I did have my reservations... but it actually tastes SO good, exactly like mint choc' chip and is really refreshing. They also do two other flavours; popcorn and bubble gum, but after trying them all I opted for the Mint as it leaves your lips feeling so fresh and tingly afterwards!
I wouldn’t be without this now, gone are the days of exfoliating my lips on a towel, this not only exfoliates them but the ingredients leaves them feeling soft, supple and nourished! A handbag necessity for sure.
